The New Zealand Intelligence Community (NZIC) is a community of government agencies working together to build a safer and more prosperous New Zealand. We are people who are committed to doing beyond ordinary work everyday to keep New Zealanders safe. We protect and enhance our country's interests here and overseas. We investigate, we analyse, we advise.

We defend and protect critical information infrastructures and ensure the integrity and confidentiality of government information.  We also collect and analyse foreign intelligence relevant to New Zealand’s interests, and assist other New Zealand government agencies to carry out their legislatively mandated functions.

We have staff in a range of roles, including cyber security specialists, engagement managers, analysts, technology experts and corporate staff.

We investigate and counter threats to New Zealand’s security, such as terrorism, violent extremism and espionage.  We also provide protective security advice to protect New Zealand’s people, information and assets.

We have staff in a range of roles, including investigators, case officers, analysts, linguists, technology experts and corporate staff.

The Security and Intelligence Group within the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC) produces intelligence assessments on events and developments, that bear on New Zealand's interests that help to inform government decision making.

DPMC is also responsible for promoting excellence in intelligence analysis across the New Zealand government.
